This chic cocktail bar proves that gin is so much more than its juniper-forward reputation. Drinks here celebrate the spirit in all its variations, from bright and citrusy to dry and piney. The menu changes seasonally but includes martinis, negroni riffs, and more, but skilled bartenders can also create unique drinks to satisfy any craving or pull from the selection of non-gin liquor, beer, and wine. Bar seating offers a peek at the varied inventory, which features bottles from around the world, while the cozy sofa nooks provide a more intimate experience.
How to book: Via Tock
Gin takes center stage at this sophisticated Eastern Market neighborhood bar, with bottles ranging from the familiar London dry style to unique finds with pops of citrus and spice. The cocktail list changes seasonally, and bartenders are prepared to create something tailored to guests’ tastes. The bar’s warm forest green walls are complemented by dark wood accents and comfy leather seating. Food is limited, so you may want to make separate reservations at one of its sister restaurants, La Collina or The Duck & The Peach, located to either side.
